(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #223 - Sort mechanical-biological: A plant that smells gas (fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 14:17:37 +0200

On November 17, a protest against domestic plants using sorting methods and mechanical-biological digestion was attended by over 300 people from collective Romainville (93), Ivry (94), Angers, Montpellier. The Ministry of Environment has refused to receive a delegation but has sent the cops! ---- The method of waste sorting mechanical-biological (TMB) and methane is very similar to a false good idea. From first glance, the gas and compost our garbage unsorted be quite nice. But problems are mounting: explosions, odors, gas just enough self-operation of the facility, compost rejected by many countries in Europe ... At the end of the chain, we are left with a factory ... gas whose remnants are just good to be landfilled or incinerated as if they had not been treated: a step industrial costly for taxpayers and ultimately useless.

In reality the process is in two stages: first the dried contents of our garbage in large cylinders which rotate continuously and automatically sorting would be assured. Problem: biological waste, which are to be recovered in wet fermentation tanks where methane evaporates and the compost is, were mixed and contaminated materials in contact with our various toxic garbage (plastic residues household products, etc.).. A plant of this type, the largest ever built in Europe, is Romainville project (93).

Process of interest questionable

In fact, to produce a readable and useful compost on agricultural land should be put in place to sort in homes and a specific collection of biodegradable waste. It exists in many European countries. It is also proposed that the association Arivem [ 1 ]], bringing together residents who do not refuse a plant to treat their waste but challenging the establishment of the plant while the technology is not controlled, it confirmed by the residents of Montpellier and Angers where this type of plant is already running.

In 93, the mobilization of the population in the spring, when the project was in soft, had torn a moratorium and audit of independent experts. Expertise note that the possible explosion of a silo affect populated areas and a school, and if the pollution from the plant is expected to remain below the standards we forgot to adding to the pollution already present , promised that the fumes in case of fire, do not come out of the limits of ownership of the factory and finally recognize the compost meets French, but not to the European standard being validated.

Pressure on elected

The Syndicat intercommunal (Syctom) chaired by the PS Paris is the decision maker for the project site is already a waste giant whose residents accept the necessity. The final vote is scheduled for December 19. Meanwhile the local elected representatives, under pressure from their populations, vote one after the other against the project Romainville, Noisy-le-Sec, Bobigny Drancy ... It was time, but their political parties do not express . Even the Greens divided on the subject, do not take position. We can therefore fear a purely electoral one year with municipal elected representatives who can say they were against but whose colleagues Syctom vote majority in the project.

At the time of going to press, AL 93 [ 2 ]] 93 NPA and the only political organizations that were against the project must challenge the departmental federations left parties so that they take a clear position.

But only allow mobilization to block the realization of this project. A demonstration will be held on polling day Syctom. And if the elected representatives refuse to listen to before we go to bed excavators. The battle can still be won!
